Just a week ahead of our home opener, Orlando City SC revealed a new away kit. The new white threads pay a tribute to the fans, including details like our founding year as a club, our zip code, and of course, the Orlando Health logo. Take a look below and let us know your thoughts.

Orlando City starts it’s season at home on March 3rd at the Orlando City Stadium. We’ll be facing off against D.C. United. During the offseason, head coach Jason Kreis did a complete overhaul of the team.

In total, we lost 14 players from last season and gained 14 new ones, including a few stars from NYCFC, RBNY, LA Galaxy, Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew. It appears that Kreis will be putting the focus on our midfield and attack. Either way, study up on the new names to the roster and be ready to yell them loud and proud with all of us in the Supporters section!

Not local? Catch the match on MLS Live. Sorry, this one won’t be on ESPN, Fox or Univision.

The new kits are available at The Lion’s Den in downtown Orlando now and will be available online starting February 23rd at 7pm ET. Who’s number will you be repping this year?
